My Birthday …

the day after …

I had a very pleasant birthday last night at Sandro’s. Honestly, there were a few people I would have very much liked to have seen but was very happy to see those there. I was bad and had some cigarettes, but am ok with that. I’m not returning to a habitual practice.

Joya found a place for us today. It’s in Park Slope area and she is happy with the neighborhood. It’s 2 blocks from the subway, and around 10 from the Food Co-op. It’s a 1 bedroom on the corner of the building, so has plenty of windows and light. While it may be a bit noisy at times, I don’ t think it will be a tremendous issue. The bedroom is big and the living room decent sized. It’s $1200/month and move in costs included 1st, security and broker’s fee of 1 month’s rent. All in all, not a bad deal considering. Joya did a great job finding us a good place so major kudoes to her!! Here’s a pic of the exterior. We will be the 3rd floor …

I’m feeling a bit restless tonight, but don’t really have anything to do, or anyone to do it with. So I’ll stop this entry before I get incredibly boring. Thanks to all those who send birthday well wishes my way! I’m thinking it’s going to be a good year.

Oh man, “Heartbreak Beat” by the Psychedelic Furs is playing on Radio Paradise right now. Bringing me back to the 80s. It was such an innocent time for me. I thought I knew everything. I had a large number of friends. I was tortured, but in such a sweet, teen-angst way. Of course it felt a bit like hell at times back then, but looking back … well, it was beautifully non-cynical.

On this day..
